So 2015 has just wound up, giving way to another glorious year ahead. The health and fitness lovers have already set new challenges for themselves. Here we unveil the latest fitness trends of the year 2016, as declared by the American College of Sports and Medicines.
The need of a wearable technology such as a souped-up smartwatch or regular fitness trackers is as high as ever. The people suffering from diseases such as obesity, cardiovascular diseases and diabetes believe that quantifying their workout has done wonders to their overall health and well-being. This happens because wearable technology makes the patients accountable for their every step, such as the miles run, stairs climbed, sleeping patterns, heart rate and so on. This helps the users in getting rid of sedentary lifestyle and they live an active and healthy life.
The Exclusive Body-Weight Workout
The body-weight workout is an extremely convenient fitness trend, as it doesn’t involve any extra equipment. All you need is your passion for fitness and your own body to work for it! The most famous of these body-weight workouts are squats, pull-ups, and push-ups. So let’s drop down and do a twenty of each right away!
High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)
HIIT is a clever name for an exercise strategy in which short periods of fierce anaerobic exercises are alternated with comparatively milder recovery periods. It’s a kind of cardiovascular workout. A single HIIT workout can be as long as four to thirty minutes, depending upon the stamina and energy of an individual.
HIIT is an extremely sought-after fitness trend this year because of its great versatility and efficiency in building endurance and increasing the muscular strength. It’s also popular because of its ‘Afterburn Effect’. This Afterburn Effect is excessive post-workout oxygen consumption and it burns massive amounts of extra calories and fats as compared to regular, steady-state exercises. HIIT also provides a metabolic boost to the body for almost forty eight hours after a complete session of HIIT workout.
Strength Training For Women
Strength training seems like a game changer for women who are obsessed with health and fitness. The benefits of strength training are limitless, which include strong bone development, reduced risk of diabetes mellitus, significant decrease in cardiovascular diseases, increased muscular strength, weight loss and many more. The most famous strength training exercises for women are power-lifting and body-weight workouts.
Seeking out expert personal trainers seems to be a big trend for the year 2016. The profiles of experienced personal trainers can be found all over your Twitter feeds, Facebook and Instagram. Personal trainers draw a carefully constructed strategy for your workout as they have excellent understanding of human anatomy and a good grip over a variety of scientifically correct workout techniques. You’ll be able to reap maximum advantage from your workout if it’s tailored to your specific needs and strengths.
This evergreen fitness course will make its way into every year’s fitness trends too, owing to its supreme physical and mental benefits. Yoga works miraculously in de-cluttering our minds of stress and anxiety. It’s the best way to achieve peace and tranquility from everyday’s pressure and distress. The physical benefits of yoga are also supreme, which include weight loss, muscular toning, a massive increase in stamina and so on.
